21:39 What Eddy loves about The Hashtag HERO!
The day I met Eddy, he said something about meditation that really stood out to me.
He mentioned that meditation is a practice of patience and forgiveness. He said throughout our practice we learn to forgive ourselves and be patient with our minds because they often run wild when we are trying to still them. It’s a process of forgiving yourself for having a crazy mind and having the patience to start again without judgment, over and over, and over again. You’re in a constant state of forgiveness.
I’ve heard that meditation involves patience and forgiveness dozens of times but I never really put together an interpretation of how it related to me in my actual practice. I’d always thought of it purely as an abstract context of “Be good to yourself because…well you just should be okay!?”.
But, when he said this it immediately clicked and broadened my perspective on incorporating these virtues more purposefully. Now my internal conversation looks something more like “Hey there mind, were you wandering again? Come on back let’s focus ;-)”.
Eddy lends great insight for thelping people understand the fundamentals of meditation in the most relevant ways. He’s a great teacher with a cool beard and contagious laugh! Definitely get to know him at EddyVero.com and on Twitter @veromeditation.
up, Up and AWAY!
